I have been given a Zanussu Fridge Freezer. The freezer

Customer Question

I have been given a Zanussu Fridge Freezer. The freezer initially worked OK but the fridge has not worked correctly since I obtained the appliance. Is there a cheap remedy for this or do I cut my losses and dispose of it.This morning I found that the freezer was also not working.

Can you tell me if the motor ever switches off and if not is the motor at the back hot to the touch?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
We had the appliance on setting 6 in the fridge and certainly the freezer worked initially. I don't know about the motor as the appliance was switched off immediately I realised the problem this morning but the grid at the back was certainly warm to the touch.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Just plugged the appliance in and switched it on but no sound from the motor which perhaps indicates that it has burnt out. What do you think?

Do you have a interior light on?

OK can you hear a clicking noise from the back every few minutes?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No sound at all.
Expert:  Dales-Electronic replied 1 year ago.

OK do you have a fast freeze or super freeze switch?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
There is a switch in the fridge which glows orange and this was on all the time when the appliance was working but the fridge still didn't work and the "Too Warm" message was always on.
Expert:  Dales-Electronic replied 1 year ago.

OK but did it cause the motor to run?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It must have done because initially the freezer worked OK.
Expert:  Dales-Electronic replied 1 year ago.

OK can you feel any heat from the motor?
